Suffolk Fire & Rescue “Filled the Boot” With $67K


This year’s Suffolk Fire & Rescue Fill the Boot campaign was an incredible success!

Each year, the department goes out in the community and asks for donations to help those affected by muscular dystrophy.

The campaign was held in August this year and raised an impressive $67,948. A check presentation ceremony was held on December 21 at the Suffolk City Council Meeting.

The International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) has helped individuals with the debilitating  disease and their families for more than 60 years. IAFF is the MDA’s largest national partner.
